Thanksgiving Day

Friday, November 19, 2010

I hope everyone has something planned with their family members or friends for Thanksgiving. A lot of the people whom I know are going out of town to visit their parents or their children. Others are having family members visit with them to celebrate. My family members are all located nearby, so no one has to travel more than a few miles to visit each other.

Although it is nice to be surrouned by loved ones during the holidays, sometimes one might find that is not possible. If you find yourself in that situation, try to not let it bring you down. There are other ways to celebrate and enjoy the holiday season. Check your local newspaper, church bulletin, or with organizations such as senior citizen homes, hospitals, or homeless shelters to see if there is something that you can do to volunteer your services. This will be a very rewarding way to share the joy and happiness of the holiday season.

BEST WISHES to ALL.

HUGS
Pam

    Pam, you are such a beautiful person. I plan to spend a few hours, on Thanksgiving, at the hospital where I volunteer.

I have always told people who have no where to go on holidays, that there are plenty more like them, so take the following year to meet some and plan holiday events with them. Like you said, there are many organizations to meet like-minded people.

Blessings,
Lynn

    Pam, you continue to impress me in your love and caring for others. I really wish I lived close enough to be in your exercise classes because I am sure I would love them.
Hope your Thanksgiving is filled with loving kindness, joy, compassion and equanimity. Bless you.

    Have a great Thanksgiving Pam. I work on "Free Community Dnners" throughout the year, but there is nothing in our town on Thanksgiving...so I'll be going to my girlfriend's house.

    Volunteering is a great answer to "lonely holidays." Thanks for the reminder.

    Volunteering is a great way to spend a holiday when you can't spend it with family and friends, thanks for reminding us!

The Weekend...

Friday, November 12, 2010

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! I hope the weather is nice in your area. It is supposed to get much cooler here over the next few days...but I hope the weather station is wrong about that. We've been lucky so far, and our days have continued to mostly be sunny and warm. Can't complain about that, can I? Keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers.
HUGS

    Hi Pam,
I'm running a day late. Too much shopping. All day Friday and again this a.m. I spent all afternoon (well...3-1/2 hours) painting one more wall in my living room. This is probably the last day I could have at least one window open. The weather is supposed to start getting cooler (has been in the mid 60's). It is November...and usually much colder here in PA. So thoroughly enjoying all.

I've had a lovely weekend so far, but am so very tired. No real exercise today except climbing up and down on the ladder and getting up and down off the floor when I was painting along the base edge. Ewww...the knees....!!!! They're telling me...hey...you're not really spry any more....!!! LOL

Hope the remainder of your weekend is Fan-Tab-U-Lous!!! SPARK ON! Gwen

    I love your weekend messages... helps me remember it's Friday. LOL (Ah, the problems of a retiree.) Seriously, we have some wonderful plans for the weekend and then on Monday, our DD's housemate arrives to stay with us until he finds his own place as he starts his new job in our town.

The Gremlin Has Stuck!

Tuesday, November 09, 2010

The Gremlin has struck (AGAIN), and I am only getting a very few email notices from SparkPeople. I know this happens occasionally, and I know it will soon be back to business as usual, but for now, I sure miss the notices of new members, new messages, replys to messages, notices of goodies and comments on my SparkPage, invitations from new friends...Oh, I just miss it all.

    It seems like that happens a little too often. They say patience is a virtue...
I guess I'm not very virtuous!

I Almost Forgot...

Saturday, November 06, 2010

I Almost Forgot... to post my usual 'Have a Wonderful Weekend' blog!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. My day was not as busy as usual since one of my weekend jobs is closed for the remainder of fall and all of winter. I will have to find something to take the place of the job, but for now...I am FREE tonight!

Take care ALL, and best wishes in reaching all of your goals!

    Hi Pam,

If anyone deserves a FREE day...you do! So ENJOY it to the fullest!

I did heavy cleaning this a.m., got my walk in the early afternoon, and then "my schedule" was "bamboozled". I received several telephone calls and finally got off at 9:00 p.m.

That would be all good, except here it is 10:00 p.m. (EDT) and I only have 1/2 my calories in and I'm not hungry!

SPARK ON MY DEAR FRIEND! emoticon emoticon

    I finished cleaning my kitchen cabinets today. I donated 6 boxes of kitchen stuff to the Salvation Army Thrift store and the cabinets look great! So I'm feeling pretty good.

Busy, Busier, Busiest!

Tuesday, November 02, 2010

The next two months are going to be very BUSY for many of us, but let's remember to stick with the SparkProgram and stay on the path to reaching our goals..
Even though the holiday are approaching, and we will be BUSIER than usual, we know that by drinking 8 glasses of water each day, exercising several times a week, and eating as healthy as possible, that we will feel better both physically and mentally.
During this BUSIEST time of the year, at least for me with Thanksgiving, Christmas, and just about everyone in my family having a November or December birthday, I know that I have my work cut out for me. I am going to HANG IN THERE, and continue to SPREAD THE SPARK!

HUGS
Pam

    I agree, It will be necessary to really watch and make sure that water is downed and the exercise is kept up. It helps me mentally be able to cope with the extra stress of the holidays. We have 4 November birthdays too.
